Quit guilting me, Nick
In today's column of the NY Times (yes, I read the NY Times when RealClearPolitics links to them, if only to find out what the enemy is thinking), Nicholas D. Kristof tries to guilt us into passing ObamaCare so some guy named John doesn't die. Now, don't get me wrong, John has a horrible medical condition that prevents him from working, insurance won't cover the surgery because he has a pre-existing condition, and I'm sure it's all George W. Bush's fault. But, Nick, buddy, instead of putting your pity story in the New York Times in a shameless attempt to change Joe Lieberman's vote on health care, why don't you put your money where your mouth is? Hmmmm? Get a quote from the doctors that say they can save him with surgery, and start raising some money. Dedicate every column you have to appealing to your dwindling NY Times readership and let's see how compassionate they really are. I mean, come on, your paper is mostly read by bleeding heart, latte liberals that have coin to spare. Have them quit going to Starbucks for a week and pony up some dough! Come on my Nick, man up! Quit peddling your guilt trips and take some action for a change!!!!
